1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, peel, then finely chop shallot. Halve tomatoes. Zest lemon, then cut into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

2

Add tortellini to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain tortellini.

3

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add pine nuts to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on pine nuts so they don't burn!) Transfer pine nuts to a plate. Set aside.

4

Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots soften, 2-3 min Add tomatoes and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are tender, 2-3 min.

5

Increase heat to medium-high, then add Cream Sauce Spice Blend. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are coated, 1 min. Add pesto and reserved pasta water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add tortellini, spinach, lemon zest, half the Parmesan and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl). Remove the pan from heat. Stir until spinach wilts, 1-2 min.

6

Divide tortellini between bowls. Sprinkle pine nuts and remaining Parmesan over top. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
